Background/Objectives: Geo polymer concrete using Fly ash is introduced to reduce the usage of OPC in concrete, which is the main cause for the emission of CO2 The emission of CO2 results in the global warming and greenhouse effect all over the world. Fly ash which is one of the most important by product obtained from the thermal power plants is used as the basic material for activation by the process of geo polymerization to the concrete binder to completely replace the pozzalona portland cement (FFC). In this paper study on the behaviour of fly ash based geopolymer concrete is done. For the process of activation of silicon and aluminum content which are present in fly ash a combination of Na2SiO3 and NaOH alkaline activators of 18 Molarily were used. Methods: The method adopted in this paper is geo polymerization. The geo polymer specimens were used at ambient room temperature for a period of 3 and 7 days and later the mechanical properties of geo polymer concrete are tested using compressive, flexural and split tensile strength tests. Findings: As the alkaline activator ratio increases from 1:2 to 1:3 the compressive strength, Split tensile strength and flexural strength increases for 3days, 7days and 28days. © IAEME Publication.

The latest version of the International Reference Ionosphere (IRI-2007) model includes an option for spread-F occurrence prediction for the first-time. The IRI-2007 spread-F occurrence is a function of solar 10.7 cm radiation flux, F10.7. In this paper, an attempt is made to cross-examine the spread-F occurrence derived by the IRI-2007 and the ionospheric scintillations in terms of the maximum value of the S4 index (S4max) between 150-350-km altitudes, calculated from fluctuations of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) intensity in the L1 channel of GPS radio occultation signals using FORMOSAT-3/COSMIC (F3/C) satellites during the low solar activity years 2007-2009. It is found that S4max maintains a fairly good consistency with spread-F occurrence simulated by IRI-2007 in the Brazilian region. Thus, the global S4 index statistics can be considered as a viable source of database to be incorporated into the global IRI spread-F prediction scheme owing to fact that the F3/C satellites can provide an unprecedented global database including the S4 index.

Exoskeletons systems initially were offered as a solution to augment capabilities of military personnel to carry heavy payloads on their shoulders while transit. Later the exoskeleton system based solution were proposed world over, to help person with disability in walking. In this paper design of a lower extremity exoskeleton (LEE) system for persons with partial disability in a leg (left or right) is presented. The proposed LEE system can be used for both performing the physiotherapy exercises and for walking assistance by a diseased person. The structural design of LEE system has been verified using solid works software. Also joint actuator sizing of the LEE system is done based on the consideration of swing and stance phases of a normal walking gait. A control strategy which ensures joint actuator torque regulation as per the assistance needed, during different phases of a gait, has been proposed and verified using MATLAB software. © 2017, Institute of Advanced Scientific Research, Inc.

This paper presents empirical relations for the chevron type plate heat exchangers (PHEs) and demonstrated their validity through comparison of test data of PHEs. In order to examine the performance of PHEs, the pressure drop(ΔP), the overall heat transfer coefficient (Um) and the effectiveness (ε) are estimated by considering the properties of plate material and working fluid, number of plates (Nt) and chevron angle(β). It is a known fact that, large surface area of the plate provides more rate of heat transfer ((Formula presented.)) thereby more effectiveness (ε). However, there is a possibility to achieve the required performance by increasing the number of plates without altering the plate dimensions, which avoids the new design of the system. Application of the Taguchi’s design of experiments is examined with less number of experiments and demonstrated by setting the levels for the parameters and compared the test data with the estimated output responses. © 2017 Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany

Alkoxy benzoic acids are well-known liquid-crystalline compounds with nematic phase of long thermal ranges. The refractive indices measurements are carried out using a wedge-shaped cell with the help of a modified spectrometer. The birefringence (δn=ne-no) is obtained directly by using the method developed by Kuczynski et al. [10] in all the available compounds (alkoxy chain number n=3 to 12 and 16). The higher homologues exhibit the smectic-C phase along the nematic phase. The molecular polarizabilities are calculated from the refractive indices and the density using the well-known internal field models. The molecular anisotropy is estimated from the Lippincott -function model and molecular vibration method. The order parameter, S, is estimated (a) using molecular polarizabilities and the molecular anisotropy for both the models, (b) from Haller's extrapolation using molecular polarizabilities, and (c) directly from the birefringence, a method developed by Kuczynski et al. [10] along with the nematic phase. Further, the order parameter from n, without the consideration of any internal field model, to the nematic molecule is compared with S obtained from density due to Maier et al. [23]. The results are compared with one another and the advantages and disadvantages are discussed. Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

Standalone Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is inadequate for precise navigation of aircrafts. Ground-based Augmentation System (GBAS) augments the performance of GNSS for civil aviation by providing differential corrections to the position of an aircraft during takeoff and landing. Ionospheric gradients affect the accuracy of GNSS and they can be detected and characterized from GNSS observations. In this paper, the ionospheric temporal and spatial gradients have been detected and the ionospheric drift velocity has been evaluated from the data recorded by GNSS receivers located at Koneru Lakshmaiah University, Guntur (GNT) and Indian Meteorological Department, Machilipatnam (MPM), Andhra Pradesh, India. Both the stations are chosen as they are situated close to each other and to the Vijayawada Airport. The rate of TEC index (ROTI) and numerical differentiation are applied to detect the ionospheric temporal gradients. Time-step and Stationpair methods are used to detect the spatial gradients. Ionospheric gradients at GNT and MPM stations for the month of January 2015 have been discussed. The gradients are found to have occurred mostly between 2000 and 2200 hrs LT. The maximum value of ionospheric gradient velocity is 473.25 ms-1. The S4 value is above 0.8 and the phase scintillation value is above 0.7 radians.

The present paper describes the optical absorption, photoluminescence and lifetime measurements of trivalent samarium doped calcium fluoroborate (CFB) glasses. From the observed energy levels, the free-ion energy level parameters for the 4f5 electronic configuration of Sm3+ ion have been evaluated using HFI model. The experimental oscillator strengths of absorption bands have been analyzed to determine the Judd-Ofelt (J-O) parameters. From the evaluated J-O parameters and luminescence data, the radiative parameters such as AR, τR and σe values were obtained from the excited 4G 5/2 level to different lower energy levels. The decay curves of 4G5/2 → 6H7/2 transition were analyzed by the Inokuti-Hirayama model assuming dipole-dipole interaction between the dopant ions. The decrease of fluorescence intensities as well as measured lifetimes at higher concentrations has been explained based on energy transfer process through cross-relaxation between Sm3+ ions. © 2011 Elsevier Masson SAS.

MANET is a wireless network connected using movable devices with unstable topology. Unlike MANETS, in a network with static topology, one can estimate and detect the cause for any disturbance in the network. The dynamic topologies in a MANET and the absence of central supervision make the transmission completely prone to several hits. The Mobile Adhoc network is wireless, very adaptive and supports the nodes to travel. This feature is a major support in many applications, but generates many security flaws. This paper discusses various terms related to security in an alphabetical order and references are stated to deal with the each attack. This may serve as a mini dictionary for attacks in Mobile Adhoc networks. © Research India Publications.

Using the concept of Hukuhara difference, in this paper we introduce a class of new derivatives called Hukuhara delta derivative and a class of new integrals called Hukuhara delta integral for fuzzy set-valued functions on time scales. Moreover, some corresponding properties of Hukuhara delta derivative and Hukuhara delta integral are discussed. Furthermore, sufficient conditions are established for the existence and uniqueness of solution to the fuzzy dynamic equations on time scales with the help of Banach contraction principle. © 2016 World Academic Press, UK.
